Hollowing Tool #1: Jakosh Hybrid Hollowing System

12-10-2018 03:15 AM by Jim Jakosh | 18 comments »

Shop stuff #142: Excalibur...The guitar, not the tools

12-09-2018 06:29 PM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

Another thing I haven’t done also is release a guitar set up video. I guess I am crossing a bunch of things off my list by releasing this video. View on YouTube

Before glueing the neck or back, I set my router a tad shallow and cut clearance for the back’s binding just in the area my router wouldnt reach later rightnear the neck. I glued the neck into place a...
